The Fizzco Projects team have carried out our annual trip to Christmas World in Frankfurt to make purchases and review the upcoming trends for the 2018 festive season. Travelling on mass team members scoured the vast halls (367,000 m²!) of Frankfurt Messe exhibition space, looking to source bespoke pieces whilst keeping au fait with all the latest trends including colours and texture.
Our observations from the 2018 Christmas World show include the following:
- Heavily flocked (snowy) trees seemed to feature throughout the show, dominating all tree stands beating the trusty green into retreat.
- In addition to flocked trees textured decorations also seem popular with velvet, felt and leather all making a notable appearance.
- A combination of rich opulent deep blues, dusky pinks coupled with slate grey and bold burgundy.
- The last few flamingos and unicorns could be found if looking hard, however hot air balloons, alpacas and balloons seemed a far more popular offering.
